David Tennant is to star in the West End revival of CP Taylor’s Good – the first show to be announced by a new production company set up by Dominic Cooke and Kate Horton.
The new production company, called Fictionhouse, will produce theatre, TV and film projects in the UK and internationally.
Cooke and Horton are reuniting to launch Fictionhouse following their tenure at the Royal Court as artistic director and executive director respectively, between 2006 to 2013.
Their new production of Good, co-produced with Playful Productions, will run at the Playhouse Theatre from October 6 to December 19. Press night is on October 14.
Tennant is joined by Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey in the production, which is directed by Cooke and designed by Vicki Mortimer.
Cooke said: “CP Taylor’s modern classic about the perils of moral compromise is an apposite fable for our troubled times and it feels like an exciting first project for Fictionhouse.
“Ever since we left the Royal Court, the incredible Kate Horton and I have been plotting about how we could find a way to work together again.
“Fictionhouse has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be happier to be developing the successful partnership Kate and I built together at Sloane Square.”
Horton added: “Good encompasses all we hope for with our work at Fictionhouse – brilliant and absorbing writing that illuminates our world, made by our greatest actors, directors and designers.
“As well as being a remarkable artist of rare and brilliant talent, Dominic Cooke is my favourite creative and business partner. I am overjoyed that our many happy years of collaborating are starting again with Fictionhouse.”
